Last weekend, we welcomed over 4,000 visitors for Jazz ‘n Families Fun Days to try out instruments, make artwork and crafts from recycled materials, hear stories in our library, and of course listen to some live jazz! Thanks to the DC Jazz Festival, all of the participating DKMC Walk Weekend museums, and everyone who attended.
